Amongst the more complex of structures, KOMPAN wood playground castles take nearly 70 hours of installation time, for the smallest, and perhaps an extra 100 hours to erect the XL. Once in place and with due care they will last for a lifetime. Robinia wood is a hardwood and particularly durable. All wood, however, changes as it dries out or is exposed to the nature that it just left. This adds character to the structure, but should it raise a safety issue then remedial measures can easily be taken.The Robinia tree is a triumph of nature. As a tree, at every level it performs. It grows in poor soils, it feeds nitrogen into the earth encouraging other plants, it flowers to be the source of Acadia honey, its leaves breathe out Co2. It adapts well in urban areas, gracing many boulevards and streets. When cut as timber, the stump regenerates and grows back quickly. It is highly sustainable. The timber is fine-grained, strong and durable - the perfect material for play features. Another aspect that displays itself with Robinia is that it dictates how it is used. Each piece is unique and this brings a degree of individuality to every wooden castle.
